Yeah it’s following a track eerily similar to Cyclone Drena back in 1997.  But every cyclone has a very different personality.  Will be interesting to see what the models come up with in the coming days.

Deja vu?
Interesting account of Drena

WOW! And then it was only a category 1? Hope it doesn’t hit as like that!

Didn’t it get upgraded to a Cat 2? Still bad for what it is… Hope no one got hurt…

Was only a tropical storm when it hit Vanuatu, but was upgraded to a Cat1 cyclone.  Now it’s Cat 2 as it moves towards New Caledonia.
